WWE.com posted a brand new article entitled “10 Instances of Superstars Going Over the Limit” where they discuss prime examples where the Superstars go above and beyond, to promote their next PPV, Over the Limit. They included Rey Mysterio winning the 2006 Royal Rumble and wrote:
Rey Mysterio is used to having the deck stacked against him, but at Royal Rumble 2006, even The Ultimate Underdog knew the uphill challenge facing him was seriously steep. Having drawn the No. 2 entry into the Royal Rumble Match, Mysterio would have to survive the entire 30-Superstar pack if he hoped to secure his main event slot at WrestleMania 22.
Stunningly, Mysterio overcame the odds and lasted the entire Royal Rumble Match, eventually eliminating the No. 30 entrant, Randy Orton, for the win. The masked Superstar’s perseverance paid off in more than one sense: Not only did Mysterio win the contest, but he also broke the record for the longest time ever spent in a Royal Rumble Match at one hour, two minutes and 12 seconds.
